PROVINCIAL HONOUR CHOIRS
Once a year, singers from all over the province and surrounding regions come together for an inspiring weekend of music and community-building with accomplished and respected conductors from across the continent. The weekend focuses on intensive rehearsals, followed by a final concert where singers can show off what they’ve learned to families and friends.
"It gives me the chance to be part of a choral community. Being so fully immersed in music and sharing the love of music builds such a sense of community that I get to be a part of."
-2020 Provincial Honour Choirs participant
The Provincial Honour Choirs (PHC) program is made up of 3 choirs: the Junior Choir (singers in grades 5 - 8), the Senior Choir (singers in grades 9 - 12), and the Adult Choir (ages 18+). Registration is open to all, regardless of choral experience or singing ability.
We look forward to celebrating a return to in-person programming in 2023!
The 2023 PHC program will run from Friday, January 27 to Sunday, January 29. Rehearsals take place Friday evening and all day Saturday. On Saturday evening, singers and their families are invited to participate in a “Saturday Night Live” event that sees a performance from a local professional ensemble, as well as musical acts from the singers themselves. More details on this program will be shared closer to the weekend.
On Sunday afternoon, following a short rehearsal, singers take to the stage to show off all they have learned for their family and friends at the closing concert. The venue sells out every year, so be sure to get your tickets early!
We are excited to announce conductors for our 2023 program:
Adult Choir: Dr. Melissa Morgan (Regina, SK)
Senior Choir: Alisa Wiebe (Winnipeg)
Junior Choir: Jorrel Camuyong (Winnipeg) & Nancy Gomes Fast (Niverville, MB)
More details and bios to come! And stay tuned for the unveiling of a NEW NAME for the event, coming soon!
